Adult ballet classes cost $50 to $85 per hour for private lessons. Group adult ballet classes range from $15 to $30+ per class for a single class, or $8 to $12 per class when purchasing a multiple-class pass. Price varies by location and the studio or instructor's reputation. Some ballet studios offer an "unlimited classes" membership for $165 to $200 per month.
Online adult ballet classes cost $10 to $35+ per month for a subscription-based service offering live or pre-recorded classes so you can practice at home, either along with the teacher during a live class or on your own schedule. Some online studios do not offer a subscription but instead charge by the class at $5 to $15+ each.
While every ballet studio is slightly different, most studios offer beginner, intermediate, advanced, and pointe classes so you can feel comfortable at whatever stage you are at in the learning process and be matched to a class with a similar skill level. Some ballet studios break things down even further and offer an initial class, or set of classes, to learn the basic movements and vocabulary to prepare you for the beginner class.
Traditional ballet studios often require a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet slippers for ladies and black tights, dance pants, or dance shorts with a fitted white T-shirt and black ballet shoes for men. Dance studios without strict requirements typically recommend wearing clothing made of flexible fabric that hugs tight to the body, so you can move freely and the teacher is able to see your movements and provide feedback.
Since every studio is different, be sure to confirm the dress code guidelines before your first class.
